Overview
From writer/director P.T. Anderson comes the turbulent behind the scenes story of an extended family of filmmakers who set out to revolutionize the adult entertainment industry in the seventies.

Idealistic producer Jack Horner has always dreamed of elevating his films into an art form when he discovers young actor Eddie Adams. Jack begins to turn his dreams into reality under the stage name of Dirk Diggler. Eddie soon gives the adult entertainment world a star the likes of which it has never seen. But the rise to fame has its costs, and soon Dirk finds himself sliding down the slippery slope of sex, drugs and violence. The only question: can he get himself back together before it's too late?

Easter Eggs
Insert the first disc and bring up the disc's main menu. Select the 'Color Bars' menu entry, which will take you to a screen with static color bars to adjust your TV set. After about 20 seconds however, the bars will fade out and you will be treated to a series of hilarious outtakes. The footage is then followed by a series of screen tests involving Dirk's 'diggler.'
